WIPO's World Intellectual Property Indicators Report says a Record Number of Patent Applications Filed Worldwide in 2022.

• Global patenting activity soared to new records in 2022, fueled by Indian and Chinese innovators, but an uncertain economic outlook is weighing on further growth.


Photo: On October 11, 2023, WIPO (World Intellectual Property Organization) Director General Daren Tang visited one of the 10,000 Atal Tinkering Labs (ATL) in Delhi, where he met young innovators. These labs are part of the Atal Innovation Mission (AIM), a flagship initiative of the NITI Aayog Government of India. The AIM promotes a culture of innovation and entrepreneurship in India, and the ATLs cultivate skills such as design thinking, computational thinking, and physical computing among children from grades 6 to 12. The labs provide hands-on experience with STEM tools and concepts, including do-it-yourself kits like microcontroller boards and 3D printers. The visit was part of the WIPO Director General’s official trip to India from October 10-13, 2023. The image is provided by and copyright © WIPO.

Geneva, November 8, 2023 — The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland, has released the “World Intellectual Property Indicators - 2023”. It is an annual survey providing accurate and authoritative information on IP activity worldwide. For the survey, WIPO’s statisticians collect data from around 150 IP offices globally.

According to the report, a record number of patent applications have been filed worldwide in 2022.

While global filings for trademarks and designs have dropped, innovators worldwide submitted 3.46 million patent applications in 2022, marking a third consecutive year of growth. China, the US, Japan, the Republic of Korea, and Germany were the countries with the highest numbers of patent filings in 2022.

China continues to file nearly half of all global patent applications, but its growth rate dipped for a second consecutive year from 6.8% in 2021 to 3.1% in 2022.

Meanwhile, the Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, expressed his satisfaction with the increase in patent applications within the country. He shared a link to a post by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), which stated that the number of patent applications submitted by Indian residents rose by 31.6% in 2022, extending an impressive 11-year streak of growth that no other country in the top 10 filers has achieved.

The Prime Minister said: “The rise in patent applications in India indicates the growing innovative spirit of our youth and bodes well for the future.”

UNESCO IIEP is working to enhance Transparency and Accountability in Higher Education Institutions to prevent Fraud and Corruption.

UNESCO Institute for Educational Planning

Photo: Cover of the UNESCO IIEP publication, “Corrupt Schools, Corrupt Universities: What Can Be Done?” The publication spotlights the need for clear regulations, transparent procedures, public access to information, and strong leadership to combat fraud and corruption in higher education institutions.

Paris, November 5, 2023 — From the outset of its 60-year history, the UNESCO International Institute for Educational Planning (UNESCO IIEP) has worked towards eradicating corruption in education. This fight became even more crucial when the United Nations Convention against Corruption was established.

UNESCO IIEP recognized that corruption has many adverse effects on education, such as reducing efficiency, increasing costs, and harming educational quality. Although corruption in education is a sensitive topic and country-level statistics are scarce, UNESCO IIEP has gathered comparative data on corruption in education on its ETICO platform.

UNESCO IIEP has produced influential publications, hosted high-level policy forums, and trained over 3,000 individuals globally in implementing anti-corruption measures in education. In 2001, it united representatives from organizations like the OECD, World Bank, and Transparency International to launch its first research program on ethics and corruption in education. It followed that by initiating a capacity-building program in partnership with the Open Society Foundations in 2003 to empower nations to implement stringent anti-corruption measures.

UNESCO IIEP has also provided direct technical support to some countries to assess corruption risks systematically and comprehensively and provide tailored policy recommendations. These assessments have been global or specifically focused on sub-sectors, such as preschool, higher education, or technical and vocational training. It has also strengthened the capacity of national teams to develop and implement public expenditure tracking surveys to trace funding flows and reduce leakages.

UNESCO IIEP has focused its recent efforts on the role of citizens in holding authorities accountable. In 2018, it launched a study on the power of open school data to promote citizen control over resources. It led to a global exploration of innovations in available government models.

UNESCO IIEP continues to eradicate corruption in education. In the future, it will investigate how to harness new digital technologies, such as blockchain, artificial intelligence, and big data, to enhance transparency and accountability in educational planning and management.

The recent UNESCO IIEP Policy Forum on Planning Higher Education Integrity was a remarkable event in Paris. The forum gathered nearly 60 higher education experts and stakeholders from around the world to discuss recent and innovative initiatives aimed at improving transparency and reducing opportunities for fraud or corruption at the university level.

The attendees included university vice-chancellors and administrators, researchers, and representatives of education ministries, international agencies, research funding organizations, civil society, students’ organizations, and the media.

According to Muriel Poisson, Head of UNESCO IIEP’s Research and Development Team, planning higher-education integrity might become mandatory for many countries and universities. It is because there is a growing concern among government funders that universities should appropriately use shrinking resources. Additionally, there is a need to protect the reputation of higher education institutions and the trust in their degrees.

San Jose, CA, October 28, 2023 — Leica has launched the M11-P camera, the world’s first with built-in Content Credentials.

It is a significant milestone for the Content Authenticity Initiative (CAI) and the future of photojournalism. The camera provides a new way for photojournalists and creatives to combat misinformation and bring authenticity to their work and consumers.

The Leica M11-P camera captures each image with secure metadata, including camera make and model, who captured the image, when, and how they did so. Each image captured will receive a digital signature, ensuring authenticity. It will help combat the rise of manipulated content and misinformation and ensure trust in the digital ecosystem.

Integrating the CAI framework in the Leica M11-P camera is a significant moment for trust and transparency for photographers and creatives. Content Credentials are seeing accelerated adoption worldwide, including among photojournalists, news outlets, creative professionals, everyday consumers, social media influencers, artists, and innovators.

Transparency at the point of capture is the most robust chain of authenticity.

  • The Content Authenticity Initiative (CAI) is a coalition of nearly 2,000 members, including Leica Camera, AFP, the Associated Press, the BBC, Getty Images, Microsoft, Reuters, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, USA Today, Nikon Camera and more, all working together to add a verifiable layer of transparency and trust to content online via secure metadata called Content Credentials.

WASHINGTON, October 18, 2023 — NASA has announced that it has selected 72 student teams to participate in an engineering design challenge. The challenge involves building human-powered rovers that will compete next April at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama.

The Human Exploration Rover Challenge will celebrate its 30th anniversary in 2024. It invites high school, college, and university students to design, build, and test lightweight, human-powered rovers on an obstacle course that simulates lunar and Martian terrain. The teams will also be required to complete mission-focused science tasks.

These student teams come from various high schools, colleges, and universities. They represent 42 colleges and universities, 30 high schools from 24 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico in the USA, and 13 other countries worldwide. Student teams from High schools, colleges, and universities selected from India come from the following cities: Goa, Bengaluru, Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai, Faridabad, and Chandigarh.

NASA believes this authentic learning challenge will encourage students to improve their understanding of collaboration, inquiry, and problem-solving strategies. Vemitra Alexander, rover challenge activity lead, Office of STEM Engagement at NASA Marshall, stated that “improving these critical real-world skills will benefit our students throughout their academic and professional careers.

During the nine-month challenge, students must complete design and safety reviews that mirror the process used by NASA engineers and scientists. The agency also has vehicle weight and size requirements, encouraging students to consider lightweight construction materials and stowage efficiency, as they will have to replicate similar payload restrictions to NASA launch operations.

Throughout the project year, teams will earn points by completing design reviews and fabricating a rover capable of meeting all criteria while completing course obstacles and mission tasks. The teams with the highest points accumulated throughout the year will win their respective divisions. The challenge will conclude with an April 19 and April 20, 2024, event at the U.S. Rocket and Space Center.

This competition is one of the nine Artemis Student Challenges and reflects the goals of NASA’s Artemis program, which includes landing the first woman and first person of color on the Moon. The NASA Southeast Regional Office of STEM Engagement at Marshall manages it. NASA uses challenges and competitions to encourage students to pursue degrees and careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
